Uxbridge College students were celebrating their achievements at A Level, BTEC and the new T Level after results were released on August 18th.
Many students who collected results on the day will be taking up university places of their choice or going into employment. A Levels, T Levels and BTEC Extended Diplomas are among Level 3 qualifications offered at the college as well as Advanced Apprenticeships, the UAL Extended Diploma and C & G Technical Diploma.
This is the first year post-pandemic that A Level assessment has returned to an exams system and the first of T Level completion since they were introduced. At Uxbridge College, where 13 A Level subjects are offered, the overall pass rate was 98%. Higher grades A* – C were at 71%. The pass rate for T Levels offered in Education and Childcare and Digital was 95%. A total of 21 students studied the two year course, the technical equivalent of A Level, which includes a sector-specific placement over a number of months.
BTEC Business classmates (pictured L-R) Alice Alvarez, Joseph Mensah and Riddhi Joshi are all on their way to university after achieving high grades in their extended Diplomas. Alice, who achieved a triple Distinction and will be studying Events Management at West London University, said: “I’m so happy and relieved; it has been a lot of hard work but I am really pleased with the results and looking forward to starting my degree.”
Uxbridge College has historically demonstrated a strong performance in “value added” measures which show the improvement in performance between when students arrive post-GCSE and when they complete their qualifications. Students often arrive at the college with relatively low GCSE grades but achieve significantly better grades in their A levels compared to the national picture.
